(CNN) — A six-car accident left actor Tracy Morgan in critical condition in New Jersey early Saturday, authorities said.

The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and “30 Rock” star was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory William of New Jersey State Police.

In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said. He did not provide specifics on what happened.

One person was killed and four others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.

Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are getting treated at the hospital.

Three are in critical condition while one is in fair condition, he said.

The hospital said that a man named Tracy Morgan was among those in critical condition, but citing privacy laws would not confirm it is the actor. State police confirmed his identity to CNN.

Morgan performed Friday night at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, Delaware, the venue said.
